In 1783, Florida was returned to Spain. This came about because the Treaty of Paris, signed in 1763, meant that Britain gained control of Florida. This treaty, between Great Britain, France and Spain, ended the French and Indian War, also known as the Seven Years' War.Florida was returned to Spain after another Treaty of Paris, signed in 1783, formally ended the American Revolutionary War between Great Britain and the USA, which had risen up against British rule.
